"New darling" on the auction floor

Classical furniture has always been a big category in the collection field. In recent years, its prices have continued to rise in domestic and foreign markets. In the 1980s, a huanghuali circle chair was available for a thousand dollars, but now there are not hundreds of thousands of people who don’t want to move home. At that time, there was no one in the mahogany eight-story table. It rose to 4,000 yuan four or five years ago, but now it can be sold. To 10,000 yuan.

Unique artistic value

Mahogany furniture is one of the fine arts and crafts in China. It is characterized by its rich and rich color, simple and elegant shape, and hard and fine wood. It is not only a practical item in people's daily life, but also has a high collection and ornamental value.

Good material and long time passed down. Chinese furniture originated in the Song Dynasty. In the Southern Song Dynasty, furniture such as chairs became popular, and the craftsmanship became increasingly sophisticated. The Ming Dynasty was the golden age of traditional mahogany furniture in China, and there were a large number of exquisite and practical furniture. During the Qianlong period of the Qing Dynasty, although the furniture materials were still excellent, the carvings were too cumbersome and the style changed. The most important reason why mahogany furniture is precious is that it is made of precious materials with strong texture, beautiful texture and elegant color in tropical and subtropical jungles. The main woods are huanghuali wood, rosewood, ebony, cherry, wenge, rosewood, etc. Nowadays, the scientific name of the old mahogany is called rosewood. More common are the rosewood trees in Indonesia, Myanmar, Thailand, Vietnam and other countries.

The design is skillful and the number of existence is small. The traditional mahogany furniture in our country is exquisitely designed. It attaches great importance to the matching structure of the furniture and the hall building. The overall configuration of the furniture itself is also distinct and harmonious. The user feels comfortable sitting on it and feels comfortable lying on the hall. It can create a clever function of decorating the environment and filling the space. Some of the materials used in high-quality mahogany furniture, such as red sandalwood and huanghuali, are rare. The red sandalwood and huanghuali furniture we have seen so far are basically made during the Ming Dynasty, and the wood is almost extinct. Nowadays, a set of rosewood furniture with millions of dollars and even higher prices is no longer a story of the Arabian Nights.

New style and high level of craftsmanship. In the design style, mahogany furniture advocates elegant and elegant lines, smooth lines, and exquisite workmanship in the production level. It does not use a nail or a drop of adhesive. The process requirements are very high, and slow work can be done. Such as Cantonese-style furniture, rich, luxurious, refined, a piece of furniture is a beautiful crafts. Because the craftsmen emphasize the consistency of the wood in the materials, generally a piece of furniture is made of the same wood, such as red sandalwood with red sandalwood, such as rosewood with rosewood, and can make good use of wood. The color and natural pattern have reached a very high level in shackles, pattern carving and scratching.

Unlimited potential for appreciation

Due to the need for the reconstruction and expansion of ancient scenic spots and museums throughout the country, the collection of furniture in the Ming and Qing Dynasties is of utmost importance to them, and the demand for furniture in the Ming and Qing Dynasties is increasing, so that Ming and Qing furniture The price is increasing at a rate of 20% per year.

With the rapid development of economy and culture, Chinese classical style furniture has been sought after by more and more collectors with its unique natural style and profound cultural connotation, and its market is increasingly optimistic. In the classical furniture, Ming and Qing style furniture can be described as unique and coquettish.

The "three excellent" of Qing furniture: First, the beautiful form. The lines are smooth, the overall proportion is balanced, and it has a unique charm, which represents the "soul" of furniture. Shape is the basics of artistic attainments, and some details are slightly different, which will affect the grace and charm of the work. The second is excellent craftsmanship. Art is the most critical and difficult part of antique furniture. In addition to exquisite craftsmanship, the structure and connection depend on the ancient method, the details of its carvings and artistic techniques are in line with the traditional style. The third is quality materials. Antique furniture must use several famous woods used in the Ming and Qing Dynasties, and select the materials according to the local color, furniture shape, style and category at that time, otherwise it will only affect its charm and future collection value. In addition, the aesthetic performance of the wood grain depends on the magic method of the material used for the opening. Among the precious woods, red sandalwood, huanghuali, rosewood, chicken wings and twins are the best. As more and more people begin to realize the value of classical furniture, and the number of classical furniture is very limited, according to experts, the number of Ming-style huanghuali and qinghuatan furniture is only 10,000, plus these furniture are constantly in recent years. Outflows can be said to sell one less piece, and collectors are reluctant to shoot. Therefore, the price of classical furniture is naturally higher and higher.
